OUR BEACHES

More than two dozen beaches sporting an endless supply of soft-as-silk, silvery-white sand await your tootsies, totes, towels, children, and chairs on the coast of Maine. Whether you are an early riser or seeking that perfect sunset shot, look no further.

Looking to surf? Check. Places for pets? Check. Surfside eats? Check. We’ve even included contact info so you can check on the parking situation for some of the Maine Beaches’ most popular locales. The only thing we can’t do is help you find that perfect spot on the beach to soak up the sun!
